Partner with the MIA

The MIA is proud to be among the good company of more than 100 organizations who help us provide a world-class museum that is accessible to all. Because of these partners, the MIA is able to serve almost half a million people annually through free admission, powerful exhibitions, youth and adult educational offerings, and inspiring programs.

The MIA strives to create shared value with its partners, which translates into more effective and meaningful service to our region. Together, we help make Minnesota a vibrant and culturally rich community where people want to live and work.

Organizational Partners

Organizations large and small are vital to the museum’s success in providing accessible arts experiences for people of all ages and backgrounds. For Corporate, Foundation, and Organizational Partners (gifts of $2,000+), the MIA provides customized community recognition and opportunities to enhance employee and customer relations. The MIA’s Business League Partners (gifts of $300-$1,999) receive benefits that strengthen their community recognition and their employees’ and clients’ connection to a renowned and diverse art museum.


Why sponsorship? Because it works. Several recent studies have shown that consumers understand and appreciate sponsorship — and that sponsorship can greatly influence buying decisions. In fact, sponsorship has the greatest impact on highly educated, higher income individuals who are difficult to reach through traditional media. Sponsorships at the MIA allow companies to strengthen their name recognition and reach targeted audiences while meeting their business goals.

The Company We Keep
JP Morgan Chase
The MIA is honored to again partner with Fredrikson & Byron P.A., Minnesota's third-largest law firm, to bring to the Twin Cities another spectacular global exhibition—"China's Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor's Legacy." Fredrikson & Byron has been serving Minnesota for 65 years and has expanded to serve Midwest clients doing business in China with their Shanghai office. Their legal work and community partnerships influence legacies around the world. Fredrikson's support of this truly once-in-a-lifetime exhibition will leave a lasting impact on our community.

Matching Gifts

Another way that companies contribute to the MIA is by matching employees’ gifts to the museum. Matching gift programs help companies support the causes important to their employees and enhance their good corporate citizenry. The MIA is grateful to our many matching gifts companies.
